Rachel and Snake from Skid Row, Along With Koe Wetzel Download

30:34 Download March 13th, 2023

I’d never met any of the three original members of Skid Row before I did an interview with Rachel Bolan last year, and since we’ve become friends. Great guys, killer band to this day!

Rachel and “Snake” Sabo joined me as we talked about the past year, which found the guys adding a new singer, recording an awesome album, and hitting the road non-stop. To say it’s been a whirlwind of a year would be an understatement. We talk about seeing KISS for the first time and how that concert changed Snake’s life. Since I did this interview on 3/13, which is Detroit’s main area code, I asked the guys what the city has meant to them. “The Motown thing had such a huge influence on my growing up” Snake told me.

Are they working on new music? Yes. Rachel said they’ve never started writing this early after releasing new material just last fall. They talk about singer, Erik Gronwall, and his upbringing and love for classic music.

I asked them about the ’18 and Life’ contest. They explain that, that classic song and more.

If you’re in the southeast Michigan area, they’re playing the Motor City Casino Soundboard with Buckcherry on Wednesday, March 15th. I’ll see you there!

Kow Wetzel is next. Is he a country guy dipping his toes into the rock world, or the other way around? We talk about, as well as partying at Kid Rock’s house in Nashville, his outlaw influences, why his music sounds like it does and lots more. 

He’s playing a sold-out show at the Masonic Temple in Detroit on March 25th.
